From the 26 fl oz bottle. Nice looking medium copper amber pour with a lingering off-white head. Moderate aroma of earthy hops and caramel malts. The body is a bit better than medium. Quick upfront sweetness followed by a bolder hop finish. Vague grapefruit. A decent IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(cask/ Man IPA) Dull amber-orange, slight haze; yellowish, quite reasonable head. Flowery nose, hoppy, bread dough. Spice-flavoured bread, notes of ginger, plenty of (British) hops, orangezest, nearly tart. Medium bodied, long peppery aftertaste. A relief from the other super-dull B&B beers tasted.

Had this on cask. Clear amber color, thin white head. Big, assertive hop flavor, intense grapefruit and dandelion. Finishes with some alcohol burn but that may be the hops. Not much malt character, just caramelly sweetness. Oddly soapy aroma. A good IPA, just a little one-dimensional.

On tap at Falling Rock Taphouse, 4/15/06: Orange-red with a sticky sided head. Almost spicey and heavy-handed. If an orange was sour, it would taste like this. Wonderful brew with little aroma.

GABF 2006: Clear light amber color with an off-white head. Big diacetyl aroma almost completely hides the hops. Sweet and hoppy flavor had a good balance. Mild bitterness on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bull & Bush brewpub. Pours a clear rusty orange body with a nice off-white, creamy ring of a head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma isn’t too bad. Nothing is in your face about it, but it has a pleasant amount of sweet caramel malts and light piney hops. Flavor is pretty solid. Nice balance and straightforward. Clean bready malts with lots of thick caramel. Moderate amount of citrus, light sharp piney hops that linger for a good amount of time. Palate is full and dry. Overall, a solid IPA for a quiet brewpub in Denver. Definitely my favorite offered by them.
